Doug Baldwin appears to announce retirement on Twitter

Doug Baldwin's contract was terminated by the Seahawks on Thursday

"The end of one journey sees the beginning of another", writes Baldwin near the end of the letter, which many online are taking as an official announcement that his career as a football player has indeed come to an end after an offseason in which he has endured three separate surgeries to fix injuries that have mounted from eight years in the NFL. You will fail over and over again.

The tweets came three days removed from Seattle announcing it was terminating the contracts of Baldwin and fellow longtime Seahawks standout Kam Chancellor with failed physical designations. "I'm 30 years old", Baldwin said at the time. He spoke about the memories and mistakes he made along the way. "College will be harder", Baldwin tweeted. "You will come to appreciate the great ones, even if others don't". You'll want to quit football during your junior year. Make sure you thank her for that later.

The former Stanford player went undrafted out of college, before signing with the Seahawks in May 2011. He also praised his coaches.

"Because the end of one journey sees the beginning of another", Baldwin added. And guess what.it will be one hell of a journey.

He finished the series of tweets with a GIF of Jon Snow from Game of Thrones, with the words "my watch has ended" written on the image.

Baldwin finishes his career with 493 receptions, 6,593 receiving yards, and 49 touchdowns and was a huge part of the 2013 Superbowl team that beat Peyton Manning's Broncos 43-8. That scoring total includes a 2015 season when he led the National Football League with 14 touchdown catches. He had back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons entering his final year with the Seahawks.
